Daddy's are always the best at frog hunting... They know all the good hiding spots.
look at how cute he is mommy... can I keep him?

pretty pretty please with a cherry on top?

Look mom, I found his mommy and his daddy... they could be like a little family!!!

Look.... he likes his picture taken.... =)

He is super kissable! Maybe if we kiss him he will turn into a prince...

ha ha ha... not exactly. ;) So now with the smooth transition into randomville... This is Drayden's mean soccer face... Call me a tightwad, but I refused to purchase soccer pictures this year. It is only about 10-20 dollars, but with two kids in soccer, and plenty of pictures from my own camera... I opted to keep my $$$. =)

And last, but not least I am super excited that my apple tree that I planted 3 years ago as a pencil sized twig is now blossoming and is taller than me. =) I love to watch nature it is very uplifting. It helps me to know that there really is a plan... bigger than you or I could ever really imagine.

The Egg Hunt

Yes I know Easter was quite a while ago, but my thinking is and always has been... "better late than never." so here we go.

This year we decided to carry on Mitch's family's tradition from last year...

We ditched the run of the mill egg hunt at the park... you know the one where the kids don't find the eggs, they just run around and gather them like crazy chickens with their heads cut off???

Instead we drove out to the mountains. Last year we missed out, but the rest of Mitch's family went on an egg hunt of grand porportions. So this year we were sure to schedule early... =)

MMMkay I randomly threw this picture in #1 to see if you were paying attention... and #2 to express my sincere horror when I realized that this is a nest of newborn caterpillars. EWWW! I thought it was a bunch of caterpillars stuck in a spiderweb, {which would also be ewww} *shuddering uncontrollably.... I never knew... I'm just sayin'

On with the egg hunt... so the girls got together in the trailer to decorate the nearly 12 dozen eggs. the following are a few of my fine specimines... =)

Ninja egg... =)

Horrified egg... why is he horrified you ask???

Because when we hunt something.... we NEVER miss... =)

That's right our egg hunt consists of shooting up all those lovely eggs....

Even the kids get to play along... {with parental supervision of course...} It was a fun memorable day filled with love... which is the most important thing I think. After all easter has nothing to do with eggs... I LOVE my savior and I am overcome with all that he has done for me. It is a reminder that if he can do all of that... it shouldn't be so hard for me to pull up my happy panties and try to be an influence for good in the world. =)
